Weld Re-8 Community early Wednesday morning on August 19th, we were informed we had a student who tested positive for COVID 19 in the high school blue cohort group. Following all guidance from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment we are dismissing all blue cohort students at the high school only. These students will be remote learners for fourteen days and return back to in person learning on September 8th. All health and safety precautions will remain in place for the white cohort group who will continue in person learning. All buildings will continue to function as normal with enhanced cleaning procedures. Please pick up your students at the front entrance of the high school if they do not have transportation home. Thank you.
